Frequently asked questions

What are the signs that I might have caught coronavirus?

The virus spreads through respiratory droplets. So you can catch the virus if an individual with the infection coughs or sneezes in close proximity to you, or you touch an infected surface without realising, then proceed to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.

The most common symptoms of a COVID-19 infection are:

  • A Continuous cough
  • Fever (Shivering and Sweating)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Loss of Taste, Sense and Smell
  • Malaise/Fatigue

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or you have recently come into contact with an infected individual, then you may have contracted COVID-19, and so the Antigen PCR swab test is designed to inform you of whether you are currently infected with coronavirus.

Which test should I use?

The COVID-19 antibody test is intended to detect the presence of antibodies, and so inform you whether you previously had coronavirus. So you should use this test if you previously experienced the symptoms listed above and have now recovered. You are advised to carry the antibody test at least 20 days after you experienced symptoms of coronavirus.

Whereas, the Fit To Fly PCR swab test is designed to inform you of whether you are currently infected with coronavirus.

For Travel and Airline purposes, most providers will just require the PCR Swab Test. However some may require both. We advise all passengers to check with the up to date requirements through their airline providers and country of destination.

The Test To Release is an in-clinic PCR Test that will allow you to reduce isolation by testing day 5 of quarentine. Only upon a negative test can you release yourself from quarentine. All reportings of your test will be made on your behalf.

We conduct only the the RT-PCR Swab test, recognised as the Gold Standard of PCR Testing recognised for all international departures and arrivals.

If I am Travelling when should I book the Fit to Fly Test Test?

Again, generally this will vary with different airline providers so please check when your samples need to be taken before your date of departure, to ensure your Covid-19 Travel certification of results is in line with airline and overseas requirements.

Each country and airline will have its own timeframe for when you should carry out your PCR test before arriving to your chosen destination. Once you know the times and dates you can book online with specific times and dates or either give us a Call where we can advise you when to have the test booked with us before making your booking.

If I was to order the PCR Swab test to conduct myself, What will I receive with the PCR Antigen testing Kit?

Please note, It is highly recommended to avoid this method for travel purposes unless the clinic is fully booked or inconvenient for you as we will not be able to monitor your swab taking technique which is done by our own trained nurses and may even disqualify you from getting a reuslt.

Should you wish to have a nurse come to your site and do the test this will of course incur an offsite visit fee of £75 within london. If interetsed for an offsite visit, Email us your interest at with your address and mobile contact number.

Should you wish to have a Covid PCR Home Test Kit sent to you, please request by calling us on 02039508134

You will receive a self-testing kit, clear detailed instructions on how to undertake the test and finally a pre-paid tracked return envelope for you to send your PCR sample to our affiliated laboratory run by Abbotts Laboratory.

All kits are supplied by the labs and approved by MHRA and are CE certified for quality assurance purposes.

How will I receive my results?

Results will be released via email as a PDF within 12-24 hours from taking the test with us.

This will be emailed on two separate attachments. An official Report and Certificate are sent via email from the Lab and the Test Clinic, recognising the results as negative.

The lab fit to fly certifciation will have the following in Headed paper:

- the date and time the sample was taken,

- the date and time the sample was processed

- sample identification tracking no. to tarck authenticity of results with the lab in line with airline travel requirements.

- State the molecular test done via an RT-PCR with result

- ISO 15189

A separate letter headed paper by the Test Clinic will also be issued certifying your PCR test was found to be negative.

What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19?

If the results from your PCR swab test reveal that you are currently infected with Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), make sure that you stay at home and self-isolate immediately for 10 days and alert those of whome you have been in contact with in the last 7 days.

Should you receive a positive result, you should visit the NHS website for the most up to date advice on or call 111

What is the Fit to Fly Test (Travel Test)?

The Fit to Fly test (antigen PCR swab test), works by determining the presence of

SARS-CoV-2 via a PCR. This helps to identify if you are currently active with the virus and so helps to eliminate the risk for other passengers when flying. It is therefore vital in our opinion to have the sample of yours swabs carried out by a trained healthcare professional to ensure the swab is carried out correctly.

Many countries and airline providers are now requesting at least a 72 hour test to be conducted prior to your travels with a medical and laboratory statement issued by an approved providor (PHE, MHRA and CQC approved).

The fit to fly certification serves the purpose of reaching your destination with the assurance that you have been tested negative but also allows you to avoid any quarantine restriction when you reach your destination.

All official Letter headed reports issued by the laboratory, will contain the following: Name provided.
  • DOB.
  • Your Unique Sample identification number.
  • Date of when the sample was taken.
  • Date when the sample of results is released.
  • Type of test done with the type of assay used.
  • Results Status.
  • ISO 15189
